Glen Lovett is originally from Australia and moved to Canada in 1994.
He was influenced early on by the European comics in the clear-line style pioneered many decades ago by Belgium's Herge, the creator of Tintin. He loved Herge's realistic artwork and the humour in his characters. They inspired him to create his own comics in his spare time all the way through high school.
His early comic work helped land his first job as a trainee layout artist with a Sydney animation company in 1981. Since 1995 he's continued working from his home based studio in the wilds of East Sooke BC creating storyboards and designs for animation companies in Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Disney TV, Warner Bros, Hanna Barbera, Nelvana, Nickelodeon and Atomic Cartoons are just some of the studios he's worked for.
His love of Siberian Huskies combined with his passion for comics inspired him to created the series of graphic novels The Adventures of Jasper. All of these books have won Ippys (Independent Publisher Book Awards).
Glen's wife, artist Kay Lovett takes care of the typesetting and technical side of publishing these fun books.
